Nervous excitation was induced by various means in horses provided with a gastric cannula. Insulin hypoglycaemia profoundly inhibited the basal acid output and volume secreted from the stomach. No clear effect on acid secretion was noted after administration of bethanechol, as the acid output was covered by the copious secretion of saliva. Atropine almost abolished the basal acid output. Sensoric stimulation by teasing caused a slight but not significant increase in the total acid output. These… CONTINUE READING
